If you want to purchase a company with successful business acquisition, an effective deal origination process is important for your success.
If you really want a choice, then your next option should be to prioritise off-market businesses for sale. The chances are that there may be only a handful of companies for sale today that are even near your brief. You can probably count them on one hand. Or possibly just a finger.
So, approaching companies that are not for sale should be a core part of your strategy. See Unloq’s business listings for potential acquisition opportunities, and opportunities to buy a company
If you need options then you need to put in place more proactive acquisition plans. To give you an idea of what it looks like for our clients here are some averages across a short-term acquisition project (between 8 and 9 months):

We use at least 6 sources of data
to build each company profile
For every 1 target approached,
we analyse at least 5 companies
Fewer than 30% of companies sold
were ever actually listed for sale
Just two percent of companies
are currently for sale
We found over 150 target companies in the industrial
adhesives sector in just three months
For a recent property project, we doubled the number of targets
the client had identified from 80 companies to over 170
For a recent client, in a very niche sector, we were able to reach
and speak to over 60% of decision makers within three months.
There are over 400 different entities that sell companies, and
only about 30% of companies for sale appear on websites
There is only so much you can tell from our website.
Our commitment to client confidentiality means that we are
cautious about detailing specific clients or deals struck
At the same time, if you contact us, we can share examples of our work,
discuss projected outcomes and cover off how we can help you.
We are confident you will find working with Unloq refreshing.
We’re not like a traditional M&A business, with large up front
fees and city-first approach to acquisition. We’re a modern
data-driven business that works as hard as possible to find
clients the best possible opportunities.
We do all the hard yards to help clients find, engage and
complete on one or more details.
Better still we are both transparent and accountable to all
clients. Offering realtime reporting, responsive staff and a
shared commitment to achieving your aims.
